Really Rosie

February 28, 2011

This week, when we went into PetSmart, we saw only one cat who’d been with us the week before.  Unfortunately, it was not so much due to adoptions as to the rampant spread of head colds.  Frank went back, Mr Grey went back, two of a litter of four black kittens

went back.  Chocolate-milk calico went back.  The pretty Nellie clone did get adopted, so there was that much good news.

Other than the weeks when there are 5 litters of kittens in the place knocking over their dishes left and right, the hardest days at PetSmart are when we have a large number of cats who don’t like other cats.  This was one of those days.  Candi was still there, stalking around and occasionally registering her displeasure.  I took this photo right after I’d reprimanded her for getting in someone’s face.

The littlest inmate this week was a timid and sweet calico tabby, about 5 months old, named Rosie.  She had the same corneal scar tissue that we’ve seen in so many cats recently, and is probably partly blind in her left eye.

She hid under the cages for awhile, then Emmy dragged her out and set her up in The Blue Thing and sat beside her for almost an hour, and she seemed to be very content with that arrangement.

She’s silky soft and very gentle, I am guessing she will have her own home soon.

    That sounds like a challenging arrangement. Having just two cats in the house who aren’t sure they like knowing the other one is there is an adjustment already!

    Aww, poor kitties getting colds. *pets them all* Yay for the Nellie cloen getting a home, though. Maybe you’ll get one or more of the snifflers back eventually? Didn’t that happen once?

    Hi Rosie! You sound like a doll. *pets you, too* A gentle, soft-furred caliby? She’ll have a home in a hurry, I bet.
